About me

A very warm welcome and thank you for visiting my profile.

I understand that taking the first steps forward can be challenging, that's why I feel that I can offer you the best support possible.

As an experienced person centred counsellor, I can offer you a safe and confidential environment, where you can express your thoughts and feelings openly.

We can work together to make continued progress to help you achieve your personal goals.

Getting Started

Please call, text or email me to set up a free initial assessment over the telephone or video.

The initial session will give us time to get you know each other, for you to feel comfortable and safe in the space I offer.  It will also give us chance to explore what you feel would be important in the therapy process.

I currently offer video or telephone counselling sessions.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
